I've always joked that my grandest goal in life was to be the muse of someone fabulous. Not a Dora Maar
who was depicted as a symbol of war, with her face constantly rearranged and tears sobbing out of her misplaced eyes. Rather, maybe an Olga Kolkov
or Marie-Therese Walter
, I suppose, can be found anywhere, but to be the person who changes art by just being so beautiful
, so radiant, so incredible as to affect an artist that much...it must be quite gratifying
It is not just the entrance into the art world
, a world that immortalizes great people
and things; but it is having someone who sees me as beautiful and can capture that. Just in the way one takes a photograph
of another, that relationship is captured. Plenty of muses have been the lover
s of the artist and although they must put up with all that being involved with a "creative type
" entails, they are shown how much they are truly adored by the person they are with.
To be a muse is not to be superficially attractive, it is to exist for someone else as a person who posses something that others do not. Perhaps, if I spend enough time among those "creative types" I will eventually be seen as art.
